Thank you for your amazingly innovative and creative entries for the third World Book Day Award. The time, imagination, energy and creativity that is poured into each and every entry by teachers, librarians, students, families and your wider communities is breathtaking. We are delighted that over 76,000 children were involved in the creation of entries this year, and to see and hear that it has prompted a different approach to reading for pleasure and a bigger focus on books and stories is truly inspiring.
After much deliberation, our judges, Oliver Jeffers (bestselling author, illustrator and artist), Sam Winston (fine artist), Kirsten Grant (Director, World Book Day) and Alex O’Connell (Arts Editor, The Times) have made their choice, and the winners and runners-up are below.
